I'm going to circumvent all your math to tell you that 1 volume is equal to about 2g/L. This is how other countries measure carbonation if I'm not mistaken, so the concept is valid, though I'm not...

You can also pick up silica gel from craft stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby where they sell it for drying flowers. A bit pricier, though. We use it in our lab cooler at work in an open beaker. ...

Zinc in small doses is fine and somewhat beneficial, but acidic solutions will leach if out of galvanized metal in high doses and it will make you sick. Again, there is a reason no one makes them. ...
